The US Airways jet that landed in New York's Hudson River has been moved from a marina to another site in New Jersey state.
The jet's fuselage had been a marina in Jersey City since January 18. It was placed on a flatbed tow truck and driven through the city on Saturday, much to the surprise of onlookers.
There was a slight problem during the trip: The fuselage couldn't fit under a bridge, so officials rerouted it through other nearby streets.
Peter Knudson, a spokesman for the National Transportation Safety Board, says the jet was taken to a salvage company's storage facility.
Flight 1549 splash-landed in the Hudson on January 15 after a collision with a flock of birds knocked out both engines. All 155 aboard survived.
